Cosmetic Plastic Surgery- Right or Wrong?
Posted 2/19/07
What worries me about this is that there are doctors willing to carry out cosmetic surgery (I have no problems with reconstructive surgury, or things along the lines of skin or face transplants when really needed)
In order to become a surgeon you require years and years of training. I believe that those years of training should be used to help people who really need it, not just those who want it. I can imagine that in the end it just boils down to the money, people will pay masses to have it done, so doctors think "ooo... a nice little earner for me, maybe I'll do that".
Personally I would not have cosmetic surgery (except for lazer eye surgery - I have majorly short sight) nor would I consider working as a "plastic surgeon". I would prefer to save lives rather than alter them beyond recognition.

usually a normal person will dislike at least one feature of his own body all the time , i mean there are minor things he would leave but when a person is born he gets different faces and shapes starting from childhood like for men thier body and face will change till they are 34 and women till they get the last stage will be 29 , and about plastic surgieries i think a normal sophisiticated person will disagree with these changes that might give him an ugly one look when every year or set years you have a fresh beautiful look without using a hammer to crack down your nose to find then it was uglier than the normal one ....


I DISAGREE DOING THEM AT ALL..

well... i guess if its because you were in an accident and need it its ok... also if you have like a minor detail you want fixed. Why not? Example, my sister wanted her breasts made smaller cause her back hurt, and they caused her problems. (shes gonna wait till after she has a baby and stuff)

But face lifts, chin implants, boob jobs (to make boobs bigger -.-) and well generaly really complicated and extreme operations o_O i dont think its right.

Theres this girl i know that had a... reorganization of her whole damn face. Now she looks like a wooden dummy/puppet thing. (i was so shoked when i first saw her) and well she wasent ugly to beguin with ._. now shes ugly forever

Plastic surgery dosent always go the way people want it to. So why risk it? But i guess it does make people feel better. Cause even if we want to admit it or not... everybody is judged by their looks

i don't judge to people that had plastic surgery, but i know for sure that i won't ever have it ;O

im pretty much completely against it. Botox and all that stuff is a waste of money and resources that could be used for something more productive, like sending vaccines to africa or something, but i doubt thats ever gona happen hehe.

plastic surgery is getting pretty extreme, anyone ever heard of eye lash transplants. Its pretty freaky stuff, saw a news article on this on Reuters a few months ago. These transplants also keep growing, so you need to trim your eyelashes every once in a while Apparently its the new 'thing'...

remember: To each their own. unless they go and do something incredibly disgusting that society itself would topple over, it's their body after all

I don't think it should be used to counter age, nor do I think it should be used to draw attention. The kind that seems right to me is when people get it to "blend in" or suppress what they already have. However, blending in doesn't mean adding something like getting a chin like Bruce Campbell or filling your breasts with iron to make them look bigger. Just grow a beard or wear one of those water bras. If you change who you are, you'd never get that person back.

Personally, I'd never do it unless it was to give me a limb back. Even if my face was burned off, I'd rather wear a mask in public than lose what is left of my face. I'm the same way about tattoos and piercings. Plus... scars make you look tough. And stupid. And I could use more of that image in both those categories.

^ i remember a friend who used to wear stuffs just to enhance her breast's size.
We're completely different in some of your examples gopher. If my face was burned off, i'd definitely get my face done with surgery. In my country, if you're that ugly - people will tease you, people will even curse you and i don't want that to happen.

i would just say that its wrong to try to change your body. if u do then thats just saying that u care more about your appearance when others. but i won't stop you it's your life and your money.

What do you think of surgery for dental purposes? Would you consider it cosmetic or not? Technically, you don't NEED it; especially if your teeth arrangement is not really hindering you from chewing better. You're mostly doing it to improve how you look, and because your orthodontist recommended it.
